The first day of summer can’t come soon enough, I mean, I know we live in a mild climate, but this May gray is getting a bit old! Plus I can’t wait until the little ones are out of school, no more packing lunches and getting everyone out the door before 7:15am. I can let them run wild, stay up late and eat whatever they want for 10 weeks! (kidding, partially)
Happy Monday! How’s your week looking? I’m recovering from back to back nighttime outings this past weekend!(which hardly ever happens) Today I’m sharing some of my staple items for spring/summer. Continue reading
Hello May! If you want to find me I’ll just be, ya know, casually hanging out in all the floral fields I can find. Seriously though, this time of year is all about bohemian vibes, and for me that equates to spring florals. I’m all on board with this trend.
Raise your hand if you want to live in a festival? Me! Me! Coachella 2017 was my third year in a row in the desert and again it was one for the books.
Art Installation One. This year’s art was super fun and playful.
Grabbing some shade, waiting for Two Door Cinema Club to take the stage.
Day 3 with the girls. The best group to spend the weekend with!
That golden hour.
Outside of our room, at the amazing La Quinta Resort and Spa.
La Quinta Resort and Spa, the most peaceful resort.
Art installation two. Whimsical pastels 🙂
Rebecca Minkoff bag, Forever 21 gold slides, Banana republic sunnies
Quality time with the girls in the beer tent, these two are the easiest going concert goers ever, hope we can do it again!
Oh Coachella… not gonna lie, this year took a wee bit longer to recover from than last year. I’m blaming it on the fact that the festival was much bigger this year, which meant much more walking around to get from show to show. I get the appeal of wanting to see Coachella VIP style but I prefer being a part of the crowd, you meet so many people from all over the world, it’s such an amazing experience, but you definitely pay for it by the end of the night!
As we did last year, we checked into the La Quinta Resort and Spa, a beautiful oasis in the desert. You’d be surprised too at how peaceful the resort is considering it’s packed with people in town Coachella. During the day it’s quite serene around the property, especially at one of the many pools. We lounged during the day so we could rally for another night.
Walking into the festival on day one is always a magical experience, seeing the Ferris wheel, feeling the vibes, all that energy can’t be replicated.
Seeing New Order and Radiohead. My musical influences definitely took shape during the late 80s and 90s, so for me, seeing these two bands were a must!
Spicy Pie. Pizza in the beer tent never gets old. Oh, and the corn dogs. Back to back Saturday and Sunday night.
Kaleo in the Gobi tent. His entire set rocked and was set against the backdrop of the swaying palm trees. One of the best shows all weekend.
Hans Zimmer performing at night. He wrote the score for Gladiator, which is still one of my favorite movies of all time.
Phantogram, GroupLove and Two Door Cinema Club were also great shows.
Writing this now, it’s tough to say if we’ll be back next year, but looking back on all the photos I’d say there’s a really good shot we make it. Until then, peace out Coachella.
